Whale Oil blogs:
As predicted Sunday ran a story about hell based almost entirely on people I have already covered. They have also inadvertantly outed their source by using emails that only Matt Blomfield could have given them.
In doing so they have ignored my offer to provide more evidence than that which they presents and also have only presented a one sided story based on flakes, failures and cheats like Paul “Weeman” Hinton.
“Weeman” actually lied. He told Sunday about the wrong caravan, I blogged about the caravan and published photos of it previously. The caravan that they talked about wasn’t the caravan that they fell out over, nor did “Weeman” tell them about his little caravan adventures. …
The franchise fees that Sunday quoted were the franchise fees under TPF, not the fees that Hell currently charges, nor charged when under the ownership of Warren Powell, Stu McMullins and Callum Davies.
Perhaps the most egregious part of the show was watching John Hudson standing outside a house and knocking ont he door and stating that it was Warren Powell’s house and that there was no answer. That would be because Warren Powell hasn’t lived in that house for more than a year. So poor was their research that they didn’t even know that.
I’ve got no stake in this issue, but would note Whale has blogged a legion of documents on this ongoing dispute. It would be interesting to have someone ascertain whether or not Sunday did do stuff such as knock on the door of a house where Powell hasn’t lived for a year, just to make it look like he was hiding.
I don’t know the ins and outs of this dispute, but it seems to me that Mediawatch could usefully look at the Sunday programme show, and check whether or not the allegations are correct.Tags: Media Watch, Sunday, Whale Oil
